In the 250th anniversary of James Cook’s Endeavour sailing, this conference looks at heroism in the history of navigation on land, sea, air and space
Continuing our well-respected series of conferences, Royal Museums Greenwich and the Royal Institute of Navigation are holding a conference to bring together current research into the history of navigation.
In the 250th anniversary year of James Cook’s departure in command of the Endeavour on the first of three famous voyages of exploration, this conference seeks to interrogate the way stories are told about heroism in the history of navigation, including land, sea, air and space.
The registration fee includes refreshments on both days, a wine reception on Thursday evening, a sandwich lunch on Friday as well as an optional ceiling tour of the Painted Hall at the Old Royal Naval College on Thursday morning prior to the start of the conference.
